Piper

This sweet Lab mix was transported from a high-kill shelter in Alabama to CFP thanks to a huge network of volunteers across the states. She had a litter of six puppies who have all found their fur-ever homes, so we are working to find Piper her people now! She’s a sweet dog — we think she is about 14 months of age, very young — that is a petite size; under 40 pounds. She is great on a leash – but will run if give the opportunity so would do best with a fenced yard. Piper is awesome with people and children — very sweet and playful. She loves to cuddle and be near you. Piper is dog selective so would do best as an only dog.

LILY – FOR ADOPTION

Hi – I’m Lily!! I’m a great size girl – about 40 pounds. Maybe a shepherd/lab mix – but we are guessing – they also are guessing at my age: around 3! I’m I am sweet and silly (that’s me upside down with my foster sister) … I live in an apartment so have fabulous leash manners. I’m house broken and crate trained. I joined Cause for Paws after the Wake County animal control emptied over 30 dogs and me from one house (12 of us came to CFP)! We have our own Facebook page. I do have heartworms, but CFP will pay for my treatment! If you want to meet me, put in an application and my foster will reach out with more info on me – and maybe we can meet!

Adventurous Abbey!

Meet Presley!

PRESLEY

Meet Presley! Her main goal in life is more belly rubs. Second, she loves to snuggle. This 2-year-old is a very happy dog with a huge smile. She loves to go on walks with her canine foster sister and sunbathe in the grass. Presley is a good listener and loves being in her crate. She is working on her relationship with cats, but does well with kids and other dogs. She loves going places and does very well in a car!

She was featured on Bob and the Showgram 

If she is adopted within two months of her radio debut on Aug. 3, she will get a Beginning Pet Kit from The Pet PantryPreseyColl.

 

Cause for Paws Secures Fourth Thrift Store Site

Cause for Paws is about to get bigger with the addition of a fourth thrift store – this one located on North Market Drive.

“We are excited that we secured the Market Street location; the addition of this fourth store will allow us to help more animals,” said CFP Founder Charles McCombs. “This gives us three distinct Raleigh addresses – coupled with our Zebulon store, there’s a convenient spot for anyone who wants to shop or donate to a Cause for Paws store.”

CFP-NC is a non-profit group that rescues dogs and cats. A portion of the profits from the thrift stores support the rescue efforts. Donations are tax deductible and the store accepts gently used items for resale. Items can be dropped off daily at the existing stores or Saturdays from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the new location.

McCombs says renovations to the 12,000 square feet building are already underway to meet an ambitious opening date of mid-December. The store is at 1657 North Market Drive.
“We want to open our doors before Christmas to draw in holiday shoppers. A grand opening is being planned to help us celebrate; it will be combined with an adoption event of dogs and cats looking for permanent homes,” he said. “And of course our customers are always welcome to bring their pets shopping with them at any of our stores.”

To volunteer with CFP or to schedule a pick-up for sizeable donations, visit www.cfp-nc.org. Hiring has started for the new store’s staff; applications are available at the other three locations (1634 South Saunders Street and 2409 Crabtree Boulevard in Raleigh; 538 West Gannon Avenue, Zebulon.)

Pet of the Month – Mia

URGENT PLEA FOR FOSTER

mia collage - cause for paws - pet adoption

At this point Mia is basically homeless and without a foster. We have just 2 or 3 days at the most to find her a safe, loving, and structured foster home. Mia is a young, special needs pup that is unsocialized. She is curious about other dogs but does not appreciate it when they get to close to her, Extended close contact, particularly around her face does not please her at all. Based on this fact, we are searching for a foster home that has no other dogs. Mia needs one-on-one attention and lots of love. We are hoping that there is someone out there reading this who has no other dogs OR has the structure and time to tend to Mia’s issues. Someone who has been thinking about fostering again who knows that their time and effort will result in the saving of another innocent dog’s life. A CFP Volunteer has been handling and testing Mia out for the past 6 days.

Our volunteer reports that when at home, Mia is a sweetheart and submissive. She is even ok meeting strangers. Mia is a young dog who has been through one crisis after the next. She needs a chance to settle in to a stable environment. She needs someone who can establish a routine for her so that she can thrive. Mia needs to receive training so that she can grow into the wonderful companion that we believe she will be. We are not sure about Mia’s exact breed but she is gorgeous. She looks like a Staffordshire Terrier mixed with Boxer. She is small in stature but is very strong. She has not been trained to walk on a leash but did OK when we tested her yesterday as long as she is not right beside another dog.

If you can help us now and by fostering and providing Mia the training and love she needs to thrive, please email our animal coordinator at Nicole.K@cfp-nc.org as soon as possible, for further information on pet adoption. The clock is ticking and the time we have to save her is limited to just a couple of days.

Even if you cannot foster, please share this post to help us get the word out about this search for a new foster home for Mia.

Thank you!
